Old Paulding Jail, 112 South Williams Street, Paulding, Ohio, 45879, United States.

Join 187 P.I.  for an exciting night of Ghost Hunting in Ohio's most haunted jail, the old Paulding County Jail, located at 112 S. Williams St., Paulding, OH 45879.

The Old Paulding Jail was featured March 13, 2020 on the two hour season premier of The Travel Channels's paranormal show, "Portals to Hell", starring Jack Osbourne and Katrina Wiedman.

Join us and the resident spirits of the old Paulding County jail for a fantastic evening of ghost hunting.

187 P.I.  paranormal investigations and research team will lead you on this night of ghost hunting. Feel free to bring any ghost hunting equipment you may have with you so that you may possibly take home some evidence. We are sorry however, we will not be allowing any CCTV camera setups. This is for safety reasons.

Through our continuous research at the Old Paulding County Jail, we have become quite friendly with the resident spirits. Several of which interact and or communicate with us every time we are in the jail. We invite you to experience some of this paranormal activity for yourselves.

Event dates and tickets will be extremely limited for the year 2020. This includes public as well as private investigation dates.

Event itinerary:
7:00 PM – doors open
7:30 PM – brief history presentation and tour of the jail
8:00 PM to 1am – guided ghost hunting in all the hotspots of the old Paulding County jail including the dungeon tunnels in the basement with members of the 187 P.I. research team.

There will be bottled water and light snacks provided.

Some of the evidence that we have captured at the old Paulding Jail include, disembodied voices of male and female entities, phantom footsteps, doors slamming, cabinets slamming shut, lights turning on and off, equipment being turned on and off, photographs, shadow ghosts, the sound of jingling keys, music and so much more.


187 P.I. has taken all the required health and safety precautions recommended by the state of Ohio with regards to the Covid-19 pandemic.


For our public hunts, at the present time, tickets are very limited. This enables us to follow the social distancing guidelines.

We have a hand sanitizing station in place that we encourage everyone to frequent as well as thermometers in the event someone starts to feel ill during the event.

Every guest will be provided a personal sized bottle of hand sanitizer at no charge.

Masks will be required by all guests and team members while inside the Jail. If you do not have a mask, a reusable mask will be provided to you at no charge that you can take home with you. There are no exceptions to this rule.

All of our reusable face masks have been constructed of new materials and are brand new (never previously worn) and have been sanitized per the CDC recommendations along with heat sanitizing before being placed in a sealed plastic bag.

Tickets for this event are sold on a first-come first serve basis. All reservations must be made in advance. No tickets will be sold at the door. All sales are final, no refunds under any circumstances. You will be required to sign a waiver of liability when you arrive.
This event is not for someone who can not climb stairs. There are no elevators in the Jail and even access to the first floor cell block has a few steps.

No one under the age of 13 is permitted. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

While the jail is very haunted, we have no control over the resident spirits or any spirits that visit the jail. That being said, we cannot guarantee you will experience any paranormal activity, however we will have all conditions in place for your best possible experience and best possible chance of capturing some paranormal activity.

Get your ticket today and join us for a fantastic evening!
